Many things in life exert an influence on your preferences. Some common examples would be social expectations, gender, education, and upbringing.

On a deeper level, your choices and preferences are also influenced by instinct or what we might call intuitive intelligence?  Have you ever wondered how this powerful force is being expressed in your life?

Seeing your instinctive side!

We often describe ourselves by our life roles and job titles. As important as those descriptions may be, they generally have nothing to do with instinctive preferences. For that kind of description we would need to use questions like:

1. Are you primal or ethereal?
2. Are you demanding or nurturing?
3. Are you more influenced by internal or external forces?

But even these questions can’t give you a clear picture because they are subject to your own intellectual analysis. So how do you separate instinct from intellect long enough to identify your instinctive preferences?

Would you like to find out?

One way to reveal your instinctive preferences is to be presented with a series of choices that have no intellectual basis. In the absence of cognitive involvement the mind becomes quiet enough for your instinctive preferences take over.

This fun little multiple choice quiz is designed to give you some insight into your instinctive preferences and how they are being expressed. The average time to take the quiz is only about one minute!

Who is the Person Behind Your Mask? http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/behind-your-mask-personality-quiz/ Mon, 07 Aug 2017 00:18:28 +0000 http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/?p=13579 The post Who is the Person Behind Your Mask? appeared first on Advanced Life Skills.

Do you behave the same way in every situation? Probably not, and that is completely reasonable since every situation is different. We are so adaptable by nature that we likely don’t even notice the difference between who we are at work, at home, or in a social setting.

But if you asked the people in those different settings to describe you, their descriptions would probably vary quite a bit. We rarely see ourselves the way others do and part of the reason is that they often see only the mask, but not the person behind it.

One reason is that their first impression of you can lead them to draw certain conclusions that will have a lasting influence on what kind of person they think you are.

What kind of first impression do you make?

If others see you as aloof or intimidating that may simply be a reflection of their own insecurities. On the other hand, a simple greeting or friendly gesture could cause them to conclude that you are outgoing or generous.

How you converse with others has a strong impact on their view of you. Are you a concerned listener or do you tend to dominate the conversation? Do you ask about their interests and concerns, or talk about yourself?

Every situation tells a different story

1. Work may bring out the perfectionist in you.
2. Socially you might seem like an extrovert or introvert.
3. At home you might be relaxed and easy going.

The point is that in these isolated settings we tend to act out different aspects of our personality and that’s the mask others see. But, what we want to discover is…

Who is the person behind your mask?

By using simple questions to analyze your behavior in a variety of situations, it might just be possible to see the real you. The person behind the mask!

This is one of the most interesting quizzes I have ever taken and I think you will really enjoy it also. If you don’t over think the questions it takes about one minute to complete.

Big 5 Personality Traits Quiz – Which are You? http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/big-5-personality-traits-quiz/ Sun, 14 May 2017 00:27:00 +0000 http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/?p=13508 The post Big 5 Personality Traits Quiz – Which are You? appeared first on Advanced Life Skills.

]]>

In the field of human psychology, the Big Five personality traits are made up of 5 very different categories that can be used to describe a wide range of personality types.

The five specific categories are openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.  Let’s take a closer look.

1) Openness is characterized by transparency, honesty and sincerity with a tendency to accept new ideas.
2) Conscientiousness implies a desire to do a task well with a tendency to think carefully before acting.
3) Extroversion (being an extrovert) is characterized by an outgoing, talkative, and energetic personality.
4) Agreeableness is characterized by being viewed as kind, sympathetic, cooperative, warm and considerate.
5) Neuroticism (being neurotic) is characterized by anxiety, fear, worry, envy, frustration, jealousy, and loneliness.

Under each of these broad categories are other related qualities such as assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.

Why the BIG 5 Model?

The Big Five model is designed to account for different personality traits without overlapping. Research has shown that the Big Five personality traits produce consistent results in interviews, self-descriptions and observations.

Another amazing characteristic about this five-factor structure is that it seems to be found across a wide range of participants of different ages and of different cultures.

Are you ready to give it a go?

This fun little multiple choice quiz is designed to give you some insight into your personality traits according to the Big 5 personality model. Average time to take the quiz is about one minute!

How is Your Imagination Affecting Your Life – Quiz http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/how-is-your-imagination-affecting-your-life-quiz/ Mon, 24 Apr 2017 00:35:47 +0000 http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/?p=13517 The post How is Your Imagination Affecting Your Life – Quiz appeared first on Advanced Life Skills.

]]>

You were born with an amazing source of creative power and it’s called your imagination. Knowing how your imagination influences your life is important because the seeds of creativity live within your imagination.

Most children have very active imaginations, but as you grow into adulthood there are an increasing number of expectations that can crowd out the role your imagination plays in your life. This is sad because there will never be a time when you would be better off without this creative ability.

Your imagination and its influence on your life

The creative energy that originates within your imagination can serve as the gateway to the realization of your dreams. For this reason, it’s a good idea to consider the following questions:

1. How has your imagination fared over the years?
2. Do you still have an active imagination or has it been suppressed?
3. What role does your imagination play in your daily life?

Would you like to find out?

Some people have very vivid imaginations and others feel somewhat disconnected from this beautiful creative power source. As a result, everyone’s life is affected in a different way, and to a different degree, by their imagination.

This fun little multiple choice quiz is designed to give you some insight into how your imagination is affecting your daily life. The average time to take the quiz is only about one minute!

Throughout history different cultures have attributed various powers to certain colors. For example, in ancient Egypt and China they believed colors were able to facilitate the healing of various conditions. This approach is now referred to as light therapy and is still being used by modern holistic practitioners.

Since color is an important factor in the visual appearance of products and brand recognition, color psychology is also used as a marketing tool. In fact, recent research shows that color can be used to communicate brand personality.

What about your personality?

Have you ever wondered why color seems to exert such a powerful force in our lives and how it might be related to personality?

Does the fact that you are drawn to some colors and avoid others reveal something about you on a deeper level?

The 4 primary colors of color psychology!

There are four primary psychological colors. They are red, blue, yellow and green. In color psychology these colors relate to the body, the mind, the emotions and the balance between them as follows.

1. Red – coincides with your physical body and might be expressed as strength, warmth, energy, stimulation, masculinity, or excitement.

2. Blue – coincides with your mind or Intellect and might be expressed as intelligence, communication, logic, coolness, or even unfriendliness.

3. Yellow – coincides with your emotions and could be expressed as optimism, confidence, self-esteem, friendliness, or creativity.

3. Green – represents balance between the other three and might be expressed as internal harmony, reassurance, equilibrium, or peace.

This of course is just a small sampling of the colors and their role in color psychology, but it’s enough to give you the basic idea.

Want to know how color relates to your personality?

Would you like to know what your color preferences reveal about your personality? This fun little quiz is designed to give you some insight into exactly that.

What Kind Of Unique Personality do You Have? http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/unique-personality-quiz/ Tue, 12 Jan 2016 22:41:01 +0000 http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/?p=13695 The post What Kind Of Unique Personality do You Have? appeared first on Advanced Life Skills.

]]>

Every one of us is unique in some way, but being labeled as having a unique personality could mean almost anything. So the real question is not “are you unique?” but rather “what kind of unique are you?”

There are so many possible answers to that question that trying to identify or describe your own unique personality might prove difficult. After all, what you consider to be completely normal might seem extremely odd or unusual to someone else.

So many ways to be unique!

What is it that distinguishes your special brand of uniqueness? It really boils down to how you respond to the world around you. It’s also important to recognize that your response is determined by how you interpret what you see.

We all have our own set of filters that help us make sense out our experiences. Those filters explain why two people can see the exact same thing and describe what they’ve just seen in completely different ways.

We call it perspective

For example, if a psychologist and a football coach see a certain expression on a person’s face, it’s very likely that they will have two totally different impressions of what that expression means.

This unique personality quiz will test your interpretation of what you see in a series of images. Specifically, it will look at how each image makes you feel in an attempt to pinpoint your unique perspective.

You might turn out to be a…

1. Charismatic leader
2. Unstoppable dreamer
3. Quirky eccentric
4. Creative surrealist, or
5. something else altogether!

Let’s have some fun!

Would you like to find out what kind of unique personality you have? This fun little quiz only takes about a minute or so to complete!

For best results try not to over think your answers. Going with your gut response will give you a more accurate picture of your unique perspective.

Remember when you were little and someone would ask you: What do you want to be when you grow up? For many people, finding the right answer to that career question can seem pretty daunting.

Perhaps it’s because deep down inside I think we all feel that there must be something I was meant to do; there must be a career that’s just right for me!

Have you found that ideal career yet?

Now I’m a firm believer in reinventing myself from time to time. Let’s face it, none of us is the same person we were five or ten years ago. And since we go through so many changes over the course of a lifetime, it seems reasonable that our ideal career choice might change as well.

So it’s probably a good idea to evaluate your preferences from time to time and see if what you are doing is still a good fit. Like many other things, a career can start out exciting and full of promise, but those feelings can change over time.

What career is right for you now?

Maybe you’ve acquired some new skills or developed some new interests recently and you’re seeing new possibilities that weren’t there previously.

Before you make any big moves, it might be a good idea to take this little quiz and find out how well your thinking is lined up with your natural tendencies.

Would you like to find out?

This quiz is based on a series of very easy multiple choice questions that you have probably never asked yourself before. It only takes about one minute to complete and the results can be quit insightful.

So, if you’ve ever wondered what career is just right for you, now’s your chance to gain some valuable insight into that question. Are you ready to get started?

What is Your Subconscious Mind Obsessed With? http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/subconscious-mind-obsession-quiz/ Tue, 01 Dec 2015 23:49:18 +0000 http://advancedlifeskills.com/blog/?p=13652 The post What is Your Subconscious Mind Obsessed With? appeared first on Advanced Life Skills.

]]>

Scientists say that your subconscious mind runs about 95% of your daily life? This is because your subconscious mind is more dominant than your conscious mind.

What does that mean? Well, it means that while your subconscious mind can affect the thoughts in your conscious mind, it’s very difficult to reverse this process.

What is your subconscious mind doing?

For starters your subconscious stores detailed information related to everything you have even seen, read, heard or experienced. It also stores all of your memories, emotions, feelings, attitudes and beliefs.

Additionally, your subconscious is busy regulating your breathing, hear beat, blood pressure, body temperature and many other bodily functions.

What thoughts occupy your subconscious?

This one can be difficult to answer because what occupies your conscious mind can be very different from what is going on in the secrete recesses of your subconscious.

Because the connection between your conscious and subconscious mind isn’t something you can readily control, there are a lot of questions that are difficult to answer. But it’s still fun to try!

Unlocking the obsessions of your subconscious mind!

This quiz uses your choice of pictures to reveal the leanings of your subconscious mind.  Even though you probably like to think that such choices are made with your conscious mind, in truth they are usually driven by your subconscious.

Perhaps your subconscious is obsessed with…

1. Nature
2. Knowledge, or even
3. What others think about you

Would you like to find out what your subconscious is obsessing over? This fun little quiz only takes about one minute to complete!
